Hearthtax.org.uk - any news about this website?
« on: Sunday 11 March 18 06:36 GMT (UK) »
I've been looking for this website after a few years lapse and find its gone. Googling around I found it had possibly been corrupted and taken down.

Any possibility of it going live again? Brilliant site!

This is the latest news I can find on their blog

Hearth Tax Online
After a ransomware attack in the summer, Hearth Tax Online continues to be down. We’re currently working on restoring the service: watch this space for an exciting announcement about the future of the web site coming soon.

Hi Goldie

It's Northumberland I'm waiting for. When the site was still live a few years ago, I downloaded all of Co Durham so will do the same when the site returns. I saw the Scotlandsplaces site at the same time I was looking for hearthtax.org.uk

Someone once told me, if you see something on the net, save it 'cos it might not always be there!

Lass, don't expect much and you won't be disappointed but have a look here:

https://web.archive.org/web/sitemap/http://hearthtax.org.uk/

The icons on my tablet are too small for me to do the link properly.

It's not a good interface, and you'll have to dig about a bit, but I could find quite a few pages a few minutes ago. The Wayback Machine is always a good last thing to try.

Hi M&A

The Wayback machine is just timing out, pity. Archive.org have loads of great stuff but not much on hearth tax.

Anyway, thanks for your suggestions, I haven't used the Wayback Machine before.

I think you should persevere with it. I'm not having any problems today, and while it will take you awhile to go through the different years available and the different areas of the touch-sensitive diagram below, there is a lot of information there.

I just realised that I had this site in my favourites. Shame it has gone.

I wonder what their exciting news is?

It was such a great resource that I wouldn't be surprised in FindMyPast have bought them out and added the once free resource to their stable of pay for resources.  :(
